Medical & Health Professionals ProgramApril 7, 2021
The Medical Professionals Program (MPP) will be offered as a three year program that will integrate academic and career related portions that will prepare students for study and careers related to medical field/biomedical industry. Students completing this program will have the necessary training and skills required for them to be successful in their chosen medical career paths. A student should pursue the MPP if they are interested in entering a medical field, enjoy studying human biology, are self-motivated, and can work in teams as well as independently.
The first level of the course will introduce students to basic anatomy and physiology involving histology, skeletal, and integumentary systems. Students will receive training in CPR/First Aid and be eligible for certification. Exposure to various medical professions and off-site visits will be an important component of the course.
The second level of the MPP will continue the study of the human body with topics including the musculoskeletal system, nervous system, and pharmacology. Specialized research projects will have students explore specific topics related to human health, disease prevention, and treatment options. This level of the course includes a number of presentations from health care professionals, as well as students from various health care faculties.
The final level of the MPP will include CPR recertification and the study of diagnostic medicine. Students will take part in a number of off-site health science related learning activities. Each student will be encouraged to explore a specific medical profession, with further integration into an internship or mentorship. A community outreach project will be pursued with presentation to peers.
